Having a pot of this for breakfast! I love the rich flavors of this tea. It’s deep and has lovely dark chocolate notes.

Thanks Sil! This one smells pretty great. I had enough for two brews: one hot and one cold. The hot tea was enjoyable. It had q nice cotton candy sweetness to it. But the cold brew is where it’s at. The flavor comes out a bit more. The black tea base is the dominant flavor and the sweet cotton candy lingers in the after taste. It’s quite delicious :)
Cold brewed this today for a few hours in the fridge. It came out a beautiful peachy\orange color. The flavor is pretty strong compared to hot brewing it. I can see apricot being the main flavor but there is something else there too. Maybe a light orange? It has a bit of tartness to it but it makes for a great iced “tea”. I may have to order more for summer.
Thanks for sharing this with me Sil!! This smells SO good. It kind of has a nice baked aroma to it. Oh my goodness. The flavor is awesome. There is a slight bitterness to it but as it cools it fades. It’s sweet and just a tad tart. The strawberry flavor is juicy and natural tasting. It even has kind of a pie crust taste going on. I reaalllyyy enjoyed this one! Thank you so much Sil!!
I haven’t had this one for a while but the flavor is really hitting the spot. It’s sweet, light, and just a little bit savory. I love the color in my cup, soft pinkish\purple.
I love this rooibos. Lovely berry flavors and woodsy notes.
Sipdown! Yay I have finally gotten rid of this tea! I found that it’s better brewed at a lower temperature. The vanilla and cakey flavors come out a bit more. I still love the sprinkles in this tea :P so cute.
Sipdown! I recieved this one in a swap and I can’t remember who sent it to me…. But THANK you! It’s absolutely delicious! It’s not your normal green tea and mint. It has a lovely liquorice and mint flavor. The green tea is a bit overpowered but in this blend it’s ok. It works. It’s very uplifting. I really enjoyed this :]
Thanks Sil! I’ll admit that I only wanted to try this tea because of the name. Vanilla Sky just sounds pretty :] The flavor is ok but it’s not the best vanilla tea I’ve had. It has a nice smooth, sweet vanilla flavor. It’s sweeter than other vanilla teas I’ve noticed. Glad I got to try this one. Thanks again Sil!
I have felt just off today so I needed something to pick me up and make me feel special. I put four tea bags in my little tea pot and it smells SO good. Like fresh baked sugar cookies. The flavor is pretty strong. Which is ok with me. Ohh I enjoyed this cup :]
Cold brewed this one in the fridge for a few hours. I love it! The flavors come out a bit more and it isn’t bitter. It’s a mellow, refreshing citrus-y drink with light black tea notes.
No air conditioner sucks D: But I guess it’s just an excuse to buy more tea for iced tea :] I brewed this one hot and then poured over ice. It has a nice floral turns fruity thing going on. It’s very juicy, too. It makes an excellent iced tea because it’s the right amount of sweetness.
I’m not really a fan of this when it’s brewed hot. Yesterday I took some of the dry leaf to work and cold brewed it while I was working. Oh. My. Goodness. It is super good when cold brewed. It takes some of the tart out and tastes like a smartie :] Mmm this is going to make a super good iced tea for the summer.
Added some honey to this and it’s amazing. It’s warm, sweet, and very graham cracker like!
I love these little things so much. Everyday I’ve been taking two to work. On my break I pop them in my tea thermos and re-steep them every time my mug is empty :] They last for quite a while and keep a good flavor with them. The most steeps I’ve gotten is 3 or 4 and then the flavor starts to water down. Mmmm :]
Thanks Sil! Mmmm this smells so sweet. The flavor is delicious. It’s creamy, smooth, buttery, and rich. I’m glad I got the chance to try this but I don’t think I’d ever buy a whole pouch of it. Too rich for me :] But I still really enjoyed it as an after work treat with some butter toffee scones :]
OH MY the aroma of this tea is amazing. Deep coco and coffee notes. The flavor is pretty amazing itself. It has those deep dark chocolate notes and it kind of has a coffee-ish flavor to it. I really like this ooolong :]
I’m happy I ordered this one! It’s such a unique tea. When it’s hot all I’m getting is the smokiness. I thought eh… But then my mom called.. and my tea got lukewarm.. I took a sip and fell in love. All of the flavors come out. It starts out smokey and then turns sweet and earthy and then turns minty and clean. Gaaahh Whispering Pine’s teas always make me crave camping, hiking, and all that jazz.
Thanks for the free sample Butiki! This is absolutely wonderful. I had it in my tumbler at work. The chocolate makes it creamy and comforting. The chocolate and mint are balanced nicely. It’s a really nice herbal tea. Now I want more….
Ok. I am having the longest week ever. And it’s only Monday. I just got moved up a position at my work and went from 27 hours a week to 40plus and working late nights. It’s only been a week and I’m exhausted. I needed one of my favorites to pick me up a bit so I chose this one.
I love, love, love the flavors of this one. The banana and cheesecake flavors are spot on and the genmaicha is a perfect base. It gives a little bit of a buttery crust taste to it.
My second one. It’s tart. But it still has a nice flavor. It reminds me of hot koolaid.
So I needed something sweet at work and bought the fruit sampler. This one reminds me of peaches and sugar cookies. It has a nice bakey note to it.
I steeped this with some dried chrysanthemum flowers. It gave it a nice, sweet floral note.
Ooo this one smells like grape bubblegum. The flavor is pretty sweet. It’s a candy like grape but it has a nice floral-ish note from the oolong. It’s sweet and the grape adds a nice twist to the oolong.
